- Tech giant lists vacancies for country operations on its website.
- The move comes after its CEO confirmed expansion plans for the UAE.
- Apple opened its first stores in the Middle East in 2015.
The announcement comes a year after the company opened the first two Apple stores in the Middle East at Mall of the Emirates in Dubai and Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi. The 14 vacancies — all related to retail operations — include the profiles of store leader, senior manager, service specialist and inventory specialist.
According to a report in Gulf News, the company is looking for people with a deep interest in technology (especially Apple products), focus on quality customer care and strong communications skills. The new recruitments are meant for its UAE offices and stores, including those located at Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. Apple CEO Tim Cook had confirmed plans for expansion in the UAE during a visit in May.
In June, the company opened two outlets at the Dubai Duty Free at Dubai International Airport, which are reported to be among the largest in the travel domain. Located in Terminal 3, the stores offer the full portfolio of Apple products and services including the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and the MacBook range.
The move comes as Apple saw strong quarterly results in September as revenue touched $46.9 billion and quarterly net income reached $9 billion. Cook attributed the revenue boost to the strong performance of the iPhone 7 models and new Apple Watch variants.
